Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2005090120A1] A foldable head restraint (5) has two head restraint supports (12,14) set within a bracket (10). A latch (22) is made integral with at least one of the head restraint supports (12,16). The latch (22) rests against a stop (32) to prohibit rotation of the head restraint support in a first direction. The latch rests against a rotational cam (30) to prohibit movement of the head restraint support in a second direction. By rotating the cam (30), the head restraint support may be folded. The head restraint support (12,14) is comprised of a metal substrate with (18) over-molded plastic geometry (16) to accept a mating part configured within the head restraint bun. The geometry of the metal substrate and over-molded plastic geometry allow for a reduction, or even elimination, of the slots that are normally required for such a folding head restraint. This ability to fold can yield greater rearward visibility and aid in the kinematic motion of the seat.
